Titus 2:3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the younger women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the Word of God be not blasphemed.

Real Moments with M.O.M.- Fun Photos

This last Sunday we were asked to take family photos for the Church Directory. We weren’t all together at the Church so Bekah took the family photo for us here on the farm. It was a fun time of finding the right spot. We thought about putting one of the Jersey milkers in the photo but Bekah wouldn’t have it. The dogs were in a few of our ‘practice’ photos but they always had their tail in someone’s face or were turned around backwards. So after some time, Bekah finally got a picture that will make it’s way into the directory. It’s not the perfect photo. A few of the children are caught without their smiles on, Josiah is blinking and we aren’t perfectly positioned. However, after some conversation of root beer floats for everyone when were done smiles started flying and we took our “wacky” photo to just be for the family keepsake. In my opinion that is the photo that probably represents us best yet. You’ll also notice a few ‘extras’ in the picture. The young lady next to my Jed is, Miranda, a sweet girl that has recently started courting my oldest boy. Her brother, Gideon, is at the end of the photo in our “wacky” version. Joe and I love having neat kids coming in our home. It feels good as our children invite friends and we consider that our family will be growing.

I’ve posted both photos here for you, our friends, to see. This way when I speak of certain children you’ll be able to put a face to the name!

Enjoy! Oh! and if you post a family photo on your blog let me know! I would love to “see” you!

With much love,
Mrs. Joseph Wood
